  • We decided to visit the Certosa di Pavia with the guidance of a monk who takes care of the visits, very prepared it was a leap into the past, the basilica is beautiful and also the part dedicated to monks interesting. It's always nice when you visit places to learn about the story.

  • I had been there as a child and had a nice memory, the surrounding part and left to decay (despite the 2-3 stalls) seems abandoned from outside even the restaurants and bars nearby... located at the entrance. Not to mention the 3 euro parking x go visit. "It costs 5 in the parking lot in Portofino! > Not to mention the fact that I'm almost outraged that i wasn't in the church with my small-sized dog... God's house is not open to everyone?!!! I used to take it everywhere and the education of my dog is better than the education of so many children and adults... Therefore I was unable to visit the church at the Interior.

  • Impressive, ask for a guided tour to see what is behind the closed doors. A monk will give you all the information. You pay as much you feel. Don't miss the shop with healthy stuff made by the community. Enjoy your time. Closing at 18:00
